A neonatal intensive care unit for premature and ill babies

205 - 209 Great Portland Street , London , W1W 5AH

Why choose us?

At The Portland Hospital, we have an on-site neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for premature and ill babies. With the advanced technology and our specialist team of consultant neonatologists and neonatal nurses we can monitor and care for babies born from 28 weeks onwards, who need a higher level of care.

Most babies admitted to the unit are premature (born before 37 weeks of pregnancy), have low birth weight or have a medical condition which requires intensive care. As your baby grows and requires less invasive medical support, they are moved to our special care baby unit (SCBU). As a small and friendly team, the same neonatal nurses care for your baby from admission to NICU to discharge from SCBU.

This allows you to get to know and trust the people looking after your baby. We can also arrange for babies born within the NHS requiring neonatal services to be transferred to our care.
